Driving to Wales with the Kia Optima Sportswagon

Recently we were heading off on a family trip, to visit Bluestone Wales. This was a 300 mile trip from our home so this seemed like the perfect time to test drive a new car. The good people at Kia lent us the Kia Optima Sportswagon, to ensure that we had a wonderfully smooth ride to Wales, and got great fuel efficiency too. My husband Thomas drove himself, and Daisy, all the way to Wales, where I met them at the train station, and then we used this lovely car to drive around and visit local places, such as Tenby. We spent 10 days driving around in the Kia Optima Sportswagon 1.7 CRDi 3 DCT 7 and this is what we thought of it.

I want to buy a car with survey earnings!

Yes, this is going to sound mad perhaps but I want to buy a car with survey earnings! The last couple of years have been fantastic for me, from a financial point of view. I’m always a fan of fitting in a little bit of everything but some of my survey websites have slid a little. I haven’t found as much time as I could have, even for the best paying surveys.

Anyway – I’ve said it now – I want to buy a car with survey earnings!
